OXFORDSHIRE cruised to an eight-wicket win away to Shropshire in their final warm-up match before the Jersey Festival at Shrewsbury.
The hosts won the toss and opted to bat, but they were quickly in trouble as Tom Costley and Leo Bethell took early wickets.
Wickets tumbled at regular intervals, with the spin of James Fitzjohn, Jonny Meardon and Sam Haselgrove accounting for six of them as Shropshire slipped to 124 all out.
In reply, Oxon wasted little time in reaching the target inside 25 overs.
Tom Condon hit 48 and Costley 31, before Connor Tinsley and Joel Washbourn-Calcutt wrapped up the win.
